24 hours of watercoloring

Measured out the size of painting that I wanted, taped it off, sketched it out... Put down the base colors. I use the color of the paper for the white in my watercolors.

Finished up the detail and signed it. 24 hours of fun, and it done!

Preston's New Board

Custom 9'4" noserider type of board with a thumb tail...mmmmm...very nice. This is the first prototype for a new model that I am working on with my team rider Preston Crowell. Thanks to Brian Michler from 12th Floor Foam & Glass for doing such a beautiful job on the glassing. Well, time to see how it works!

I caught a Whopper!

I caught this guy surfboard fishing off of my 9'8" Micah Wood noserides insane and helps me catch fish!

The New Shop

I haven't posted anything for quite a while now. I have been busy building out my new shop! Here are some photos from the process. It all started with four walls and one flourescent light... I had some help from a couple wise guys (uncle Sonny and my dad)... I would probably still be figuring out how to frame a wall if it wasn't for them.
Two walls up:

Three walls up!

Time for some drywall...

Woah! A hall way!

Slowly looking like the shaping room...

Getting the wiring all finished...ZAAAP!

Time to paint...

Here is the mysterious airbox...

air compressor fits in the airbox...

All boarded up and the lid...

And here it is...the mysterious airbox, and it works as a thinking chair!

Made a cool fin clamp that fits in my shaping racks.

A homemade surfboard wall rack!

And I am finished! About three weeks of hard work, and a little elbow grease and now, it's time to shape!

A Faria Adventure

While taking a break after some mind boggling noserides up at Rincon Last week, Preston and I decided to go on a little adventure. We found this spooky cave that we had to go explore...
Here is the starting of our adventure. We were told to beware of Trolls and snake pits!

It was pretty dark inside...we had a sense, but never knew what was learking in the shadows...probably the trolls.

The weirdest part of this cave was that we grew larger and larger the farther in we went. We grew so big that eventually we were crawling through the long and gruesome tunnel on our hands and knees!

After jumping over snake pits and alligators, and escaping the cave trolls (they were incredibly loud, but more annoying than anything) we made it through to the other side...of the street.

And on the other side was this beautiful lagoon filled with crystal brown muddy water. Nothing better than a good adventure and some great imagination!
the end.
